Stacy Smith Evans Photography » Virginia Lifestyle + Portrait Photographer

Kellie and Nic were married two weeks ago at Faithbrooke Barn and Vineyard in the beautiful rolling hills of Luray. There were so many thoughtful details throughout their day from the gifts they gave each other to the handkerchiefs they gave their parents, making it hard for everyone to hold back the tears. She gave him a watch with a note that said don’t be late and he gave her a three-panel painting of the Nashville bridge where they got engaged. How sweet! Their cute little pup, Zoey, even made an appearance, letting it be known that she wanted to be part of the ceremony too. The party lasted well into the night with dancing and donuts, an impressive rap number, and one last kiss under the barn lights. Congratulations, Kellie and Nic! It was such an honor to document your special day!

“All that is within me cries out to go back to my home on the Hudson River” -FDR Hudson River Valley, New York - Stacy Smith Evans PhotographyP I NI M A G E

The Technical: ISO 320, f/4.5, 1/1000 of a second

The Equipment: Nikon D750, Tamron 15-30mm

The Story: Last weekend my husband and I traveled up to West Point, New York where he worked and I played. ūüôā ¬†As soon as he told me our trip dates, I could picture the Hudson River School landscapes in my mind and¬†was excited to capture my own views of the river and mountains. After dropping him¬†off every morning, I meandered through West Point¬†to this waterside area to watch the sun rise. ¬†On the first morning, I was literally gasping as I got my gear out of the car, looked over my shoulder to see if anyone objected to¬†my super obtrusive lens, and fumbled with my settings to catch the fog resting on the horizon. I love the muted tones, and although I should’ve set up my tripod for a long exposure, I’m okay with the rippling water since the sky lacks detail. ¬†And the mood perfectly conveys the reality of being the only one at the water’s edge. ¬†If you have the chance to visit West Point and the Hudson River Valley, do it! ¬†I walked¬†the campus every morning taking in the¬†phenomenal river views – just me, my camera, and a few cadets on their morning run!

The Technical: ISO 250, f/7.1, 1/160 of a second

The Equipment: Nikon D750, Tamron 15-30mm

The Story:¬†When I was growing up, we picnicked at Shenandoah to escape the hot summers in the suburbs. ¬†We’d scan the woods¬†for black bears along the Drive, eat fried chicken at Elk Wallow, and start a fire when the sun went down. ¬†When my husband joined our family, we kept this tradition and still picnic with my parents at our same spot every year. ¬†Last summer, we met for an early dinner and then¬†stopped at Pass Mountain Overlook on the way home. ¬†It was July so the grass was tall and glowing in the golden light. ¬†Just before the sun dipped below the mountain range, I got down low to place the grass in the foreground. ¬†If you know Skyline Drive and its elevation, you know it is generally 10 degrees cooler and it can get pretty windy at the overlooks. ¬†I snapped about twenty frames of this same scene to capture the grass blowing in the wind and out to the edges of the frame. ¬†Some of those shots have some undesirable¬†lens flare, but I was happy with this one!
